JAPAN VERSUS POLAND was the title of a Daily Prophet article written by Ginerva Potter and published on 21 May, 2014. The article covered the match between the Japanese and the Polish National Quidditch teams, part of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.
A tight, well-fought game of Quidditch resulted in a well-deserved win for Japan, who emerged the victors with 350 points to Poland's 140. The final score does not reflect Poland's spirited and dynamic play, but the inexperience of this young side showed as they were put under considerable pressure by veteran Japanese Beaters Hongo and Shingo (recently voted second only to legendary 1994 Bulgarians Volkov and Vulchanov as all-time best Beater duo). Polish Seeker Wladyslaw Wolfke is one to watch: a daring and graceful flier, he was unlucky to miss the Snitch early in the game, and was only narrowly beaten to it in the 59th minute by the gifted Noriko Sato.
Japan will play joint favourites Nigeria in the quarter-finals.
